Exploring Edinburgh Part 2 + let me take you up the Scott Monument

The day after our prosecco night we had a bit of a slow start to the morning.
J got her haircut and we spent some more time walking around Edinburgh.
I kept getting annoyed that the sky on the photos was so grey but then I looked up and realised the sky really was just that grey.
And of course this week, the sun has been out all the time…Edinburgh // L.AlexandraEdinburgh // L.AlexandraShowing J the birthplace of Harry Potter.

The steps are very narrow, especially at the top.
So nothing for those that are claustrophobic!
